14:17:36 <tuanta> #topic APAC plans
14:17:53 <tuanta> Fedora 15 Release Events, any updates?
14:18:48 <tuanta> I wrote reports for the series of F15 release party in Vietnam yesterday night
14:18:48 <harish> i am looking at a F15 launch event in Singapore in July.
14:18:51 <tuanta> #link http://vn.fedoracommunity.org/
14:19:03 <tuanta> great harish
14:20:18 <harish> i have just created a new live DVD with libreoffice, virt, inkscape, xournal, scribus, arduino etc.
14:20:25 <tuanta> but I see it seems late?
14:20:31 <bckurera> wow harish you are great
14:20:40 <bckurera> i like live DVD and its content
14:20:56 <harish> it is not late per se. just that too many other things happening in June.
14:21:00 <bckurera> no tuanta we can use them for FAD and FUDcon
14:21:18 <harish> i am making about 2000 liveDVDs btw.
14:21:27 <kalpurush> sorry fellows, my net is dancing :(
14:21:31 <tuanta> yes harish
14:22:14 <tuanta> no, bckurera. I mentioned to Harish's release party in July; but now, I know the reason
14:22:30 <bckurera> ahh ok dear
14:23:02 <tuanta> harish, the main challenge to do a LiveCD with such good software is the CD sieze
14:23:10 <tuanta> s/sieze/size
14:23:15 <harish> hence the liveDVD
14:23:25 <tuanta> ah, yes, sorry :)
14:24:11 <harish> i will post on my blog the ks file I created - basically added to ones that were already made available.
14:24:31 <tuanta> I tried to make a LiveCD with such software, especially Office suite, but the size of CD is too small
14:24:35 <tuanta> +1 harish
14:24:43 <suresht> + harish
14:24:56 <suresht> err/ +1 harish
14:25:41 <tuanta> now, I hope the new feature compressing the LiveCD contents would be helpful.
14:26:15 <harish> i think there is already significant compression in the liveCDs and not sure what else can be done.
14:26:20 <tuanta> #link http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_15_talking_points#Improved_Compression_for_Live_Images_Feature
14:26:28 <tuanta> I will try it soon
14:27:51 <tuanta> any other updates on your F15 release parties?
14:28:19 <tuanta> remember, you should write the report after event finished
14:29:14 <tuanta> I see suresht, you have received F14 media from kaio and harish, right?
14:29:37 <harish> tuanta, i think it was sent by kaio not me

14:41:54 <tuanta> is it for FUDCon APAC 2011?
14:42:05 <tuanta> harish, have you got any ideas?
14:42:25 <harish> i know Rahul (mether) has been working on it.
14:42:32 <harish> they have put in a bid i believe.
14:42:39 <harish> for 2011
14:43:26 <tuanta> yes, so it's not for the one we have discussed much (initiated by KageSenshi)
14:44:17 <tuanta> then, there is only one FUDCon proposal in 2011?
14:44:39 <harish> yes, the 2012 is for next financial year as well from a red hat budgeting perspective
